The new line of optical-to-electrical converters from Tektronix Inc. can be used with the company's sampling oscilloscopes to add SONET/ SDH functionality to the CSA803C and 11801C communications signal analyzers. The SD-44 15-GHz O/E converters are optimized to characterize the pulse shape of optical signals up to 2.488 Gb/s, where frequency components five times the data rate are required for analysis. The company says the conversion gain of 35 mV/mW provides enhanced performance over existing high-bandwidth O/E converters.
